St. Simon the Apostle Catholic School has been graced by the St. Simon parishioners, parish relatives and parish friends generosity, time and time again. Our volunteers are an integral part of our school going forward and we appreciate everyone's support and partnership in the journey of Catholic education. Our volunteers contribution make a rewarding difference in our school community.
